Im lovin music now. The new killers CD, is pretty fresh. I like them dudes, they’re pretty high on my favorite band list [arcade fire would have it if they werent so damn weird…lyrically atleast]. And Im also pretty hooked on that American Gangster, track 9 it the truth. Thanks for the hook up ; ). Yeah, and then of course i like the new alicia keys… even though her voice is a little rough, i’ve always liked her stuff. ¬†Well, the break is right ar0und the corner That means i can finally get my Tribe album from the crib… I been feenin for that Tribe Called Quest Anthology for a while.

Aight, time for some more electric relaxation

The answer my friend is blowin in the wind…

I was listening to an old Bob Dylan song, Blowin in the wing, and it seemed to inspire me. I’ve been hit pretty hard by a lot of disappointments this year and i’ve faced a lot of challenges and i’ve let myself down in a couple things. So i was listening to Dylan and reading when this song came up. I listened to the song twice and remebered hearing them talk about it on NPR. Dylan wrote it in 63′ its basically a war protest song about peace and it asks a lot of the unanswerable questions that our society still faces [and always will for that matter]
I’ve been through a couple rough patches out here in the DMV and i keep a lot of my stuff to myself [cause im basically a pretty private person] but when i start to feel dejected something always comes around to helps me. I’ve realized that there is always room for improvement and that some things happy for you to learn and grow. Its hard to accept cetain things being the way they are.
I remind myself that no matter how bleek things may be they can always be worse.
[ however piteous THAT may sound…well, shoot it helps me sleep at night]
Voltaire taught me that blind optimism is foolish and my life has taught me that realism is the only true science. Real talk is that Im, breathing, im young, smart,talented, [handsome ; )] and i have people who love me, no matter what. Things may be bad, and relatively speaking they may seem to be the worst ever, but i know despite all that; I have a lot going for me and so do you which ever loyal friend and blog reader you may be. Be encouraged, because beyond all the supernatural and pomp and circumstance that we mix up in our rationale, things could be MUCH worse than whatever you are dealing with. The answer really is blowing in the wind. Go outside and take it all in, this is life… aint no body said it’d be easy

How Cool is This?

Ok,

study break time… I found this cool artists work and was really impressed. He’s a London based graphic artist named Jethro Haynes. His drawings are ok, but I think his sneaker sculpure art is pretty friggin dope.

One Day


I was doing a little web surfing the other day and happened upon this picture of Slick rick, from the late 80’s/early 90’s. I know most people probably look at him like he’s a friggin weirdo [and he is lol] but one thing I can admire about this pic is that its ballsy [to say the least].

Not many people can take a picture like this and A) not die from heavy metal poisoning [lol] and B) look so damn cool. I think Slick Rick is a G for this pic and I hope to one day be able to do anything i want and exude nothing but confidence while also lookin fly as hell
peace&love
